*Ternstroemia gymnanthera (Wight & Arnott) Beddome. Ternstroemia, Japanese Cleyera. Hab: Moist forests, bluffs, bottomlands, swamps. Dist: Native of e. and se. Asia (China south into se. Asia). Locally and aggressively naturalizing at Kalmia Gardens, Coker College, Hartsville, Darlington County, SC, where perhaps planted as long ago as the 1930s. Serviss et al. (2018c) report its naturalization in AR.

Origin/Endemic status: E. and se. Asia

Taxonomy Comments: Material cultivated and naturalizing in the se. United States does not key perfectly to T. gymnanthera, and may represent other species (such as T. luteoflora L.T. Ling), hybrids, or horticultural selections out of the normal morphological range of wild T. gymnanthera at least as described in the Flora of China (Ming & Bartholomew 2007).

Synonymy: = Fl5, K1, Ming & Bartholomew (2007); = n/a – RAB; ? Cleyera japonica – K3, K4
